What is Prednisolone?
Prednisolone is one of a group of medicines known as steroids; specifically, it is a glucocorticosteroid. Glucocorticosteroids occur naturally in the body, helping to maintain good body functioning and the health. Prednisolone is effective in the treatment of many different inflammatory diseases and conditions. Such diseases include autoimmune diseases (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and ulcerative colitis), and skin, blood, respiratory, kidney, bowel, muscle, and joint problems. If left untreated, the inflammation may escalate and worsen your condition. By taking extra glucocorticoids, Prednisolone acts by reducing inflammation.
How to use Prednisolone
Prednisolone is often taken in a tablet, which comes in a range of doses and in regular, gastro-resistant, and soluble forms. There is also an oral solution, a suppository, an ointment, and an injection. Tablets (regular and gastro-resistant) should be taken whole with a glass of water, at regular intervals but can be divided into equal doses. Soluble tablets are dissolved in water and the drink should be taken immediately. The oral solution is provided in a bottle; a syringe is used to withdraw the medicine from the bottle, which is then swallowed. The suppository is gently inserted into your back passage where it will dissolve. A small amount of the ointment is gently spread over the affected area. The injection is given by the doctor. Avoid eating liquorice when taking this medicine.
Who can use Prednisolone?
Prednisolone may be taken by people of all ages. Women should advise the doctor if they are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have any plans to become pregnant or to breastfeed, before taking this medicine.
Allergies to Prednisolone or the ingredients in the preparation, adverse reactions to other steroids, and an untreated systemic infection will preclude you from taking Prednisolone. You are advised to tell your doctor before you take this medicine if you (or a family member) have had depression or any other mental health problems. Because you may have to visit your doctor more often than other people, mention if either you (for your safety) or any family member) have brittle bone disease (i.e., osteoporosis or low bone density) as Prednisolone can make this worse. Additionally, mention epilepsy as epilepsy medicines can also lower bone density, and conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, glaucoma, stomach ulcer, muscle weakness and both mild and serious infection as Prednisolone may exacerbate them.
